I was not even aware of this course's existence until I visited this site, so I checked it out, and was very pleasantly surprised.
Nine very well-maintained holes in beautiful picturesque settings, I found this a tight, but very honest course, Only a couple of holes where the flag isn't visible from the tee, but with the layout of the fairway on these holes it is clear where you should be aiming for. No nasty surprises, you don't blindly fade the ball around some trees only to find it's landed in a pond when you get there. No water here. That isn't to say this course is a pushover, errant drives are punished with rough or woodland, so accuracy is key.
The groundskeepers had sanded the greens anticipating winter, so fees were at the winter rate of £5 for 9, £10 for 18. What an absolute bargain! That said, the greens were still very true, and flat even the ones on hills, (This is Derbyshire, after all) If they consider these greens to be less than perfect, I can't wait to play them again next season when at 100%
Couple of gentle hills, but the most of this course is flat.
The staff HAVE to get a mention in my review. This was my first time here, and I was made extremely welcome by them.
After the round, I had a bit of engine trouble, and the groundskeepers both did their best to help me out.
Thoroughly enjoyable, I can't recommend highly enough.
